It’s crunch time for Wolves, do we sell and cash in on Fletcher and Jarvis or do we rebuff Sunderland and West Ham United again?
The duos departure has been inevitable ever since our relegation from the Premier League was confirmed.
Both players do not want to remain at Wolverhampton Wanderers and both have clear opportunities to return to the Premier League.
The problem is, the offers on the table for Fletcher and Jarvis both fall slightly short of Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey asking price.
So what do we do? Do we hold off and keep players who no longer want to be at the club or do we sell?
Some will argue that if we don’t receive an offer that matches our asking price then we should keep hold of them as selling them will be a sign of weakness, but personally I think a time comes where you draw a line and move on and now for me anyway, that time has come.
Matt Jarvis joined Wolves five years ago from Gillingham for £700,000 at 26-years-old he’s virtually at his peak and if we sell for a fee just short of £10million in instalments then that’s good business. Jez might have eyed a bit more, but I think he can still sit down in his office and think he’s done well there.
Then there’s Steven Fletcher, he joined two years ago following Burnley’s relegation for a club-record £7million, now even once you factor in the sell-on clause, even if we do accept an offer of around £12-13million instead of the £15million asking price, once again that’s a good profit.
It should give new Norwegian boss Ståle Solbakken more than enough of a transfer kitty to rebuild a squad in his vision and one that will get us out of the Championship.
So lets sell up and move on.
